New Farm Nash Theatre has opened auditions for their upcoming production of ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel’.
About the Show:
British aristocrat Sir Percy Blakeney appears to be a vain and shallow man, but in the guise of his alter ego, the Scarlet Pimpernel, he is a courageous hero.
As the Pimpernel, Blakeney works to free the French nobility from the guillotine during the fervour of the French revolution. Blakeney’s life of luxury with his beautiful French bride, Marguerite, is threatened when the sinister operative Citizen Chauvelin aims to stop the Pimpernel at any cost.
The cast requires 5 Male and 2 Female highly versatile voice actors able to play a range of ages. Casting preference will be given to actors with convincing French and English accents who will be able to confidently swap back and forth between multiple characters.
Rehearsals will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 6:30 – 9:00 PM and Sundays from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. Rehearsals will also be over the Christmas period and will be subject to cast availability.
Auditions will be a cold read, but auditionees are welcome to additionally present a prepared piece.
Auditions will take place at The Play Shed, accessible via Amity Street, and behind the Merthyr Road Uniting Church.
